Google names Flash public enemy no 1
Google has proven to be user oriented and the company continues to prove this again. The tech giant has announced that to improve user experience on smartphones and tablets, the company will start warning users when a site won’t load properly on the mobile device.

If Google spots a problem with a site, users will find something like the above showing up on their screen. The update takes the form of a small line of text in your search results, which the company plans to scan automatically using a set of algorithms.
For developers sake, Google recommends them to use HTML 5 or CSS which is supported on all devices. HTML 5 also provides a guide for building responsive web design that has a good appearance on universally all screens. Be warned developers – you will get blacklisted by tech typhoon if you block the company’s web-crawling software.
